With the arrival of the winter season, comes the fear of flu and its symptoms. As far as seniors are concerned, it becomes essential for both, elderly and their caregivers to follow some preventive measures. Without a doubt seniors are at greater risk of flu and infections during winter months. This means if you are the family caregiver for a senior loved one, cold season is going to bring some serious challenges.

Resist Visitors::

During cold and flu season, more visitors can be an open invitation for germs. Especially, if the visitors are experiencing headaches, fever, cough, or a runny nose, ask them to reschedule their visit for when they are feeling better.

Being Active is Key::

Being Active is Key: You need to pay attention to their regular physical activity. It is important for maintaining a strong immune system. Plus, it will encourage their body to fight off impending infections. Motivate elderly to take a daily walk around the block, or spend some time at the gym.
